“Casual lunch.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We had stayed here in the past and enjoyed the outside dining area. As we were staying just down the road we went for lunch. It has a very casual atmosphere and lots of boat dockage. Good food.

“Worst dinner out my family has ever had.”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from our dinner and I immediately had to join Trip Advisor to share how terrible this restaurant is. We arrived at a time when it was not very busy; the service was so slow and there was hardly anyone there. We waited so long we finely had to go and get our own drinks from the bar. The server never even acknowledged or apologized. The food which took forever, was ten times worse than the service. Several of us ordered the broiled sea scallops, which were the smallest "sea scallops" I have ever seen. I'm not sure how they were cooked but there was no taste, flavor, and I couldn't even eat them. The French fries were very obviously cooked earlier and reheated. When a 10 year old says they don't like the French fries it speaks volumes, and the salad bar was sadly lacking. The restaurant is beautifully located right on the water with tons of potential. If it's too much trouble why not do a more basic menu and concentrate on doing it well with a better trained staff? Save your money, skip this place.
